    A reminder about water safety
    Dear Parent / Carer, Yorkshire Water Services Limited have asked us to share the important messages below with our families - In this current hot weather, people are often tempted to cool down by taking a swim in reservoirs or rivers. However, cold water can be a killer and we'd like to raise awareness of these risks amongst school communities. Cold water shock can lead to hyperventilation, increased blood pressure, breathing difficulties and heart attacks plus water temperatures remain just as cold in summer as in winter. We are supporting the ‘Float to Live’ safety message from the Royal National Life Saving Institute (RNLI). In their hard-hitting video, they deliver advice on how to react should you become stricken in cold water. Everyone who falls unexpectedly into cold water wants to follow the same instinct, to swim hard and to fight the cold water. But when people fight it, chances are, they lose. Cold water shock makes you gasp uncontrollably and breathe in water, which can quickly lead to drowning. If children find themselves unexpectedly in the water, the message is to float until the cold water shock has passed and they will be able to control their breathing and have a far better chance of staying alive. It is important that we share water safety advice with our young people to prevent further incidents occurring. Below is advice from the West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service and links to two youtube videos which might be of useful to watch with children - Yorkshire Water twitter post https://twitter.com/YorkshireWater/status/1267425988847325184 #coldwaterkills https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ile-FwNEafk #FloatToLive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OBCFEEZe1U Thank you all for your cooperation. Yorkshire Water Services Limited Registered Office Western House, Halifax Road, Bradford, BD6 2SZ Registered in England and Wales No 2366682 Further advice from West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service Safety Advice for Dog Walkers · Avoid throwing sticks or balls near water for dogs – they will go after it if they think you want it back even if you’ve thrown it too far or into dangerous water · Never enter the water to try and save a dog – the dog usually manages to scramble out · Even dogs that like swimming can usually only swim for short bursts – keep an eye of your dog and don’t let it enter the water if it’s older or tired · If your dog loves the water keep it on a lead and make sure you have control to prevent it jumping into hazardous or unsafe areas · Remember the wet riverbanks, steep edges or jagged rocks can make it hard for a dog to scramble out and be a slip risk for owners · Don’t lean into water and try and lift your dog out – you can topple in · Dogs can have cold water shock too · If your dog has struggled in the water it may have inhaled water and should see a vet as dogs can drown after the event if water has entered the lungs What to do if someone falls into deep water: · The first thing to do is call for help – straightaway. Call 999, ask for fire service and ambulance. The emergency services will need to know where you are. Accurate information can save precious minutes. If you have a smart phone and have location services or map tool enabled, this can help. · Don’t hang up – stay on the line but try and continue to help the person if appropriate. · Never ever enter the water to try and save someone. This usually ends up adding to the problem. If you go into the water you are likely to suffer from cold · Can the person help themselves? Shout to them ‘Swim to me’. The water can be disorientating. This can give them a focus. · Look around for any lifesaving equipment. Depending on where you are there might be lifebelts or throw bags – use them. If they are attached to a rope make sure you have secured or are holding the end of the rope so you can pull them in. · If there is no lifesaving equipment look at what else you can use. There may be something that can help them stay afloat – even an item such as a ball can help. · You could attempt to reach out to them. Clothes such as scarves can be used to try and reach or a long stick. If you do this lie on the ground so your entire body is safely on the edge and reach out with your arm. Don’t stand up or lean over the water– you may get pulled in. · Be mindful that if the water is cold the person may struggle to grasp an object or hold on when being pulled in.

    Contact from school
    Dear Parent / Carer, We hope you and your families are keeping well and safe. Over the next few weeks, a member of staff from your child's class will be calling you at home to have a quick chat with the children, just to say hello and touch base. The staff here are missing the children and we hope the children will enjoy speaking to someone from school. So please watch this space for the phone call, as mentioned, over the next few weeks when staff members from your child's class will be in school. Take care and the staff look forward to speaking to all the children soon.

    Free School Meals
    Dear Parent / Carer, We hope you are keeping well in these difficult times and managing to stay as safe as possible. We have some important messages regarding free school meals so please read the below carefully - The first batch of free school meal vouchers were approved on 3rd April 2020. These vouchers are only valid for ONE MONTH, so this first voucher needs to be used by 2nd May 2020 at the latest. There have been issues with the Government website that we apply for these vouchers through since last week so the second batch of vouchers have taken longer to come through this week. Please be assured these are on their way to those that are eligible. Please keep an eye on your email over the weekend and check your junk mail too. If you haven't received your vouchers by Monday, please contact school then. Please note, these vouchers are for BENEFITS based free school meals only, not universal free school meals that all children receive in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. If you are struggling at home and need help, please know we are here to help wherever we can so please contact us if you are facing difficulties. If your situation has changed and you think you will now be eligible for benefits based free school meals, you can apply online through the link below - https://online.bradford.gov.uk/ufs/FREE_SCHOOL_MEALS.eb?ebd=0&ebp=20&ebz=1_1582722834104 You can also call the free school meal team at Bradford Council on 01274 432772 Please stay safe and take care.
